Goodreads Summary:

The heart-stopping conclusion to the New York Times bestselling Shatter Me series, which Ransom Riggs, bestselling author of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, called "a thrilling, high-stakes saga of self-discovery and forbidden love"
Juliette now knows she may be the only one who can stop the Reestablishment. But to take them down, she'll need the help of the one person she never thought she could trust: Warner. And as they work together, Juliette will discover that everything she thought she knew-about Warner, her abilities, and even Adam-was wrong.
In Shatter Me, Tahereh Mafi created a captivating and original story that combined the best of dystopian and paranormal and was praised by Publishers Weekly as "a gripping read from an author who's not afraid to take risks." The sequel, Unravel Me, blew readers away with heart-racing twists and turns, and New York Times bestselling author Kami Garcia said it was "dangerous, sexy, romantic, and intense." Now this final book brings the series to a shocking and climactic end.

My Thoughts:

I loved this book. Mafi writes feelings like no author I have ever seen before and, in my opinion, it really makes up for the areas she might be lacking in. The thoughts in Juliette's head are just so vivid that I feel them in my being. And the scenes between her and Warner are electric. I feel him. I've seen some reviews where people are very critical of Juliette ending up with Warner because of what they see as abusive behavior from book one. Some of these people are not too fond of what they call the "rewriting" of history in this book. I'm not too sure that I would call it rewriting. In the first book Juliette was very scared and interpreted things oddly (hence all the mark throughs in the text of the book). Now, in Ignite Me, she's seeing things with more open eyes and more as they actually exist and not as a scared girl afraid of who she is and everyone around her. My one beef with the story is that it ended too soon. I wanted just a bit more. What happens in the long run?
